Shamrock Snack

This was originally posted on my other blog, Superheroes and Princesses.  I made these last year and plan on making them again this year as a special St. Patrick's Day snack.  To make them, I used:

  • yogurt covered pretzels,
  • green Wilton candy melts,
  • green icing (missing from the picture - oops!), and
  • green decorating sugar

First, I melted the candy melts and used the melted green candy to attach the pretzels to form shamrocks.

Then, I outlined the shamrock shapes with green icing and sprinkled on the decorating sugar.

Our favorite St. Patrick's Day book is The Night Before St. Patrick's Day by Natasha Wing.  It's a fun book about a brother and sister making leprechaun traps to catch a leprechaun.  Since first reading this book a few years ago, we have made our own leprechaun traps each year.  We are already brainstorming for new and improved traps; maybe this will be our lucky year!


  1. Very cute!! I think I am going to make these this year!

  2. Your kids have the best snacks. I hope they know how lucky they are!

  3. Abby was sitting here and said, "that looks cute!"

  4. I can see that you are in spring mood already :) Those shamrocks look super cute.

  5. Cute!! I love that it's something that the kids can help make too.
